Frying Pan Farm, in northern VA, is worth checking out for the holiday season! It is a full working farm through the year with lots of animals and equestrian activities, but during the holiday season it is a must see to help celebrate Chrsitmas! It is a great place to see Santa and there are a lot of cool events to check out during the season! The great thing is that it is all through Fairfaix County parks and Recs and everything is affordable!
What a great FREE activity! If you are in the Orange County, CA, area every Wednesday you can visit historic Crystal Cove area and you and your children can make a sea glass necklace. The area itself is very cool, you are stepping back in time to the 1940's! And the beach itself is beautiful! My favorite part of visiting this area is going to the restaurant Beachcombers. It is right on the sand with great food and drinks! The Pims cup is amazing! It truly is a unique and wonderful southern CA experience! Check out Crystal Cove!
